There are many streaming services available at the moment and it looks like we have another contender who has tossed their hat into the ring. NBCUniversal has recently announced their upcoming streaming service called Peacock, and one of the ways the company is standing out from the competition is by offering a free tier.
NBC was building a standalone news streaming service to cater to cord-cutters and the network has now launched the service. NBC News Now is the free streaming service that will provide news programming between 3 pm and 11 pm ET. The service will be accessible via the web as well as through the NBC News app for devices like the Apple TV and Roku in addition to mobile devices.
Subscription services are the rage these days and it’s easy to see why. This is because subscriptions ensure a steady stream of revenue, versus ala carte where customers might go weeks or months without purchasing anything new, whereas subscriptions ensure that money is rolling in regardless of whether customers use the service or not. Kind of like the gym.
Want to use a service? Pay for it. That much is expected, such as cloud storage, music streaming, and video streaming (free tiers aren’t really free per se since you’re “paying” by listening to ads). However NBC Universal could be trying out a different strategy, which is instead of users paying them, they could pay users instead.
